horrible service and horrible food. messed up all of our orders when we were one of the only people there. would not come back even if they paid me. food was overpriced and very mediocre.
Great service and the food was delicious. It was a bit odd that they mix the mimosa for you in the champagne bottle but the Bloody Mary was awesome!
I love this place!! It's a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
Scarlet Oak is a neighborhood gem. It is one of few restaurants in the Navy Yard that offers sit down dining and table service, which seem to be disappearing. The food is very good. Whenever we go, we order the fried brussel sprouts and cauliflower for starters. Salmon, pesto pasta, and pizza are faves. The service is top notch and friendly and there is outdoor and indoor seating. Hard to beat!
I’d just sold my home of ten years, so that my husband and I could buy something together. We celebrated a quick listing and settlement the entire weekend. Scarlet Oak was the perfect ending to the weekend. Staff were professional and pleasant and the food and drinks were great! We hope to return soon!
My husband and I had a reservation for not long before closing. Even though it was late, the staff took exceptional care of us, even running back to the kitchen AFTER it closed to get me extra sauce to take home with my leftovers. The Crispy Brussel Sprouts were fantastic (hence the extra sauce for the leftovers!) And the burgers were super tasty. Great spot for a casual sit down!
First time going to Scarlet Oak and it won't be the last! Perfect atmosphere for the outside seating and the food / drinks were excellent.
Brunch was delicious and very enjoyable. In addition to the excellent food the service was top notch. 3 of the 4 of us ordered the chicken & waffles as this was recommended by a friend. It Did not disappoint! Highly recommend!
While it might have been small to them that night like always, was big to me. Being able to call a restaurant and preorder dinner so that you could make an occasion extra special is a beautiful addition to any night. It allows you to show your partner that you pay attention to detail, you know them and that this night, this moment is all about them and how they make you feel.. I am in love with this restaurant. And I am too grateful that they helped me make the occasion extra special. The service, the cleanliness, that atmosphere will be missed when I move back home to Miami but you guys rock..!!!
Always very nice staff and excellent food.
For me it is not worth a second try. The menu selection is lacking. The drinks I had were weak and the found lacked flavor.
Great neighborhood spot for a nice brunch. We will try the dinner menu soon.
Reserved outdoor seating on Open Table, but when we arrived were told outdoor seating was "first come first served" and were given the choice to wait for approx. 1 hour for an outdoor table to come available or sit inside. Food was decent, however we had to wait 40 minutes until we received our meals.
Great food, friendly staff
The brunch menu was not expansive but the food was great, the drinks were great and the restaurant was nice and clean.
Always the best!!! Great brunch, great people, great service!
They are taking precautions, distancing the tables on the patio and all staff were in masks. Staff here is always great and make it feel like visiting a friend's place when we are there. Food is consistently delicious and a quality menu from starters to entrees to wine/beer.
We had a nice lunch on the patio. Our server was wonderful, but she was working the inside of the restaurant as well as making drinks, so it was a little slow. Our table was also not cleared when we were done eating. The food was very good and I will go back.
I had the burger and it was delicious! Their COVID precautions were strictly followed and I felt very safe. Considering the challenges serving a socially distanced restaurant, they did a great job. Will likely return.
Service was excellent ! Food was a great value for the price
Always adore a meal here. Neighborhood favorite!
Very good brunch and we felt comfortable with the safety pro cautions and were happy with a shady spot on the patio.
Chicken Pesto Pasta was tasty but very greasy. Half the amount of pesto sauce would have been sufficient!
And there needs to be more treatment for bugs/mosquitoes for patio seating.
The staff and management have done a nice job of putting COVID safety measures in place. The food is still excellent.
Had a friend in town and wanted a great brunch. Glad we came.
I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. You will always be greeted with a warm smile and a family atmosphere. The drinks keep flowing and the food is delicious! Carlos and Max are the BEST!!
Good, easy, pleasant service, convenient. Nice veranda.
Despite what is listed on open table for happy hour, they are not currently running the usual happy hour specials.
I don’t know why I keep giving this place chance after chance. The food quality has defiantly gone down over the past few years. They’re still serving “tator tots” as breakfast potatoes. Due to covid we chose to sit outdoors.
I walked right in...no extra precautions. But when my guest arrived the manager would’ve like her enter without applying the store purchased hand sanitizer. She stated she had he own in her purse but he insisted she HAD to use theirs or she couldn’t get in. If I wouldn’t heard this convo we both would’ve left based on the fact I had to do none of this prior to walking in. The hostess asked my name & took me to my outdoor table. Again the food is mediocre. Waffles were good. But I’m done with this establishment. Won’t be returning
Food and staff was amazing! Also took proper coronavirus precautions.
Staff was very nice and the food was solid and reasonably priced.
Did a great job adapting to COVID protocols, and the patio was lovely. Food is good, but overpriced for nothing special. Service wasn't great, but I think it was just our server.
Weekend menu was disappointing, but the brunch menu looked amazing.
It was a good overall experience. But no coffee available at brunch?
I was denied service when I sat down. First it was they don’t take ID on the phone then they didn’t take broken IDs. Then they denied food service and drink service in all.
There was hair in my food. Good service, good food, but yeah... multiple hairs in my food. Yuck
VERY GREAT, COMFORTABLE, LOVING, AWESOME, PLEASANT, AN WONDERFUL!! OVERALL GREAT
Always enjoy Scarlet Oak!
It was the first week of Phase I COVID opening and they did a great job! We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
Reasonable brunch spot for a nice Sunday date.
